Wow, a hung parliament. Interesting. Unlike the ocean off Sydney it has to be said. The MHL buoy is showing about 1.5 metres of south swell at a windswell-y 7 seconds. That’s translating into abject flatness at the Dee Why end of the beach I can see from the RealSurf crows nest. There might possibly be a little something up the beach toward Longy, but I’d be astounded if it was above the knee high mark.
The outlook for the coming week remains dire for Australia’s east coast. However, this morning’s run of the models is showing a reasonably interesting system spinning up in the Tasman toward the end of the week. Because it’s right on the edge of the forecast range, I’m not getting too excited, but with luck we might actually have a wave late Friday… naturally we’ll be keeping an eye on it for you.
Go well with your day!
